DASSSA’s Secondary Schools Bursary initiative, currently provides motivational and financial support to three students at the Pierre Charles Secondary School in Grand Bay, with sums totalling between £500.00 to £750.00 per annum.

Our assistance means these pupils are able to attend school with required textbooks, uniforms, school equipment and most importantly financial help to the parents for meals. Our program is dependent on a close working relationship with the participant school as well as the parents. This ensures that at the end of each academic year, we receive a full schools report and can evaluate each child's progress. It is essential to our work that the parents are active in the education of each child, both in ensuring that progress is made as well as encouraging each pupil.
